Deggo Group's story

This solidarity group was created on the 23rd of March, 2001. It is made up of 15 women who live in the same district. Their main type of business activity is small retail.

Maïmouna, on the left of the photo, raising her hand, is the group's leader. She is 48 years old, widowed and has no children. She is, however, responsible for 2 children entrusted to her by relatives. She sells vegetables and has a good experience in this line of work, which she has been practicing for several years. This loan will enable her to strengthen her capital and better develop her business activities. The profits will allow her to improve her family's living conditions (health, food, clothing, etc.) and to build up her savings.
